Anonymous Survivor Poem: 'Love Song for Laura Palmer'
Why Do You Want To Tell Your Story? To express this pain and this journey using my own voice for once. So people understand the prevalence of abuse in young lives, the gravity of it, the impacts it has on the lives of victims and survivors - sometimes ending them - and to help people understand how abuse is structured into familial, political, social and economic systems. All of these need to change so that child abuse can stop forever.
